The Duke lacrosse rape case has so many problems you could fill a book.
An article at the Duke Basketball Report touches on some reasons why the Duke lacrosse case should be ended. When The Law Is An Ass:
Like most of you, we have followed the lacrosse case with grave concern. We have generally declined to take a stand on the question of guilt or innocence, because until all the evidence is in the public arena, we can't know for sure what to think. But what can be and should be commented on is the conduct of the prosecution. This case is made for the media age, with a devastating combination of race, sex and privilege, but it also underscores the dangers of an out of control prosecutor who shoots from the hip.
The whole thing has become fairly sprawling, so it might be good to go back and review a bit. We've broken it down into three major categories: Evidence, Witnesses, and District Attorney Mike Nifong's behavior.
